A dedication to the Children of India and Peru

India is the world’s second most populous country, and this makes them highly represented in several diaspora communities as well. Currently, India is witnessing a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and the crisis has had a devastating effect on the people and economy of the South East Asian country.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 1.8 million have been infected and more than 64 thousand people have died because of COVID-19 in Peru giving them the highest rate of deaths per million people in Latin America.

There continues to be an outpouring of love and show of concern across the world as we hope to see an end to this pandemic.

In solidarity with the children of India and Peru, Liz Franklin is out with her latest book: “COVID Runs Wild – Training a Tiger Virus (Puma lloviendo un virus).”

She starts with a dedication to “all the children who use safe COVID practices to help keep their communities safe” and describes them as “mighty COVID tiger trainers!”

In the seventeen-page book, the new strain of viruses that keeps ‘prowling’ is described as a “man-killing tiger/puma on the loose” which needs to be tamed.
